We demand action! Pattaya foreigners complain damage from next door condo construction

Are there any zoning by-laws or an official city plan which clearly identifies what can be built in a specific area or what type of business can operate in an area?

 

It seem it's just urban sprawl - anybody can build anything anywhere.

 

I guess one option is to sue for damages - but only the lawyers will get rich using that path.

Yes any rich Thai can do anything e.g. Red Bull Heir, running over a policeman in his Ferrari , killing him, leaving the scene , drinking alcohol when he got home , paying off policeman's family etc, never been to court. Big resorts built in National Parks, illegal building on beaches everyhere e.g. sea side of Walking Street Pattaya. Whatever happenned building next to Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai , Only about 10% of hotels in Phi Phi capable of legal registration .............., Aliens controlling large areas of resort beach land e.g.  estimated to be 80% at Mae Ramphung Beach Rayong, against the law.

 

The only option is bribing someone. This is natural Thai culture. Up to them.

I rent a condo in Soi Cozy in a block I would consider buying but there is massive plot of undeveloped overgrown land from a previous failed project. Its tied up in legal problems now. But once that problem is sorted its obvious a condo will be built there. Meaning 24/7 construction noise and dust.  To say nothing of what effect it will have on the environment when it is completed. In the UK, when buying a property you can learn of any future developments and the status of the land nearby. Not foolproof but a bit less haphazard than here.

And the surprise is????

There is no surprise. Buying property anywhere in LOS is like buying a house next to Swampy and then complaining that planes are flying overhead.

It may be fine when bought, but nothing to stop an all night karaoke starting up next door ( or even a new condo under construction ), and nothing Johnny Foreigner can do about it. Yet there are those that will say we that warn of such are mistaken. 555555555555.

I wonder what this house is worth now?

Nothing by the sound of it

You should never, ever buy a house near vacant land. Anything can be built upon, they should think themselves lucky a rubbish tip was not approved.

 

I’m not sure how A/C;s  can be noisy, the condos are not occupied as no one has settled, waiting on city halls approval.

Always rent, so you can move at moments notice, when something like this happens, or some youths move in nearby with their mindless Thai 'rock', or the Thai neighbours turn on you for a whole myriad of reasons.  Just go to one 'just built building', until the problems come [which they will], and then onto the next 'just built building'.  Quick on your toes, and travel light.

There is a office mid rise office building under construction outside my window, they say it will be six floors and thus not block my view.

For two years at least no substantial work has been done, just an ugly shell. What are they thinking why start anyway?

    The builder should pay for any repairs needed due to the construction but it's ridiculous to complain about air conditioning noise.

Anyone who owns a house in that area would be well advised to stop moaning and sell up as quickly as possible. All the currently empty land around there will eventually be built on, and once the hordes of short-term Chinese and Russian tourists start checking into these hideous condo buildings the area will be a disaster zone.

.....it's ridiculous to complain about air conditioning noise.


I'm not so sure. Some of these buildings are 6 or 7 stories high, with two el-cheapo air-conditioners on each floor every 4 or 5 metres. And some of these building are only a metre or two from the boundary line. The noise can be astonishing when they are all going.

Look at Nam Talay in Na Jomtien. Built right on top of what used to be a rather nice private soi with some nice houses in it. Probably now only worth a tiny fraction of what they used to be, I suspect.

Shameful.

A house next to a big empty block..what did they expect?

I checked before buying my condo in BKK and the big empty block next to me is limited to 8 stories as are the ones built next to it and Im way higher than that.

Well, that's how it is in Thailand.

 

Advice : Dont buy property here ...

Amen.  If you aren't able to figure this simple fact out then you get what you deserve.

But the developers will say 'If we stop developing and building more villages and condos then a lot of workers will have no job so have to continue building'.

 

 

Maybe the developers will say that, but it is most certainly not thought.
